The FA and St. George’s Park have officially opened the Maize Maze at the National Forest Adventure Farm in Burton upon Trent.
The Maize Maze carries the iconic Three Lions insignia and was created as part of The FA’s ongoing 150th anniversary celebrations.
Burton manager Gary Rowett and former WBA, Derby County and Burton defender Darren Moore were among a number local celebrities in attendance at the official unveiling.
Speaking at the launch of the maze, David Sheepshanks CBE said: “We are delighted that The FA’s anniversary is being honoured in this way. Football is both fun and great exercise so it’s good to see young people enjoying the football activity and in the maze here today.
“With the National Forest Adventure Farm attracting over 100,000 visitors a year, we are thrilled that in our 150th year we are able to showcase football in this way to that many people, as well as to engage young people and their parents in the work that The FA is doing at all levels of the game.
“St. George’s Park lies in close proximity to many tourist attractions in the local area. We have accessible pricing schemes for local clubs and schools to be able to play football there and I would like to stress that all visitors are welcome to come and take advantage of the superb hotel facilities.”
The Maze is will open to the public from on Saturday 13 July until 8 September.
Entry to the National Forest Adventure Farm and the maze will cost £8.75 with young children (Under-2s) given free entry.
